The Graphic World of Paul Peter Piech by Zoe Whitley
Published by Four Corners Books & V&A (2013)
Born in New York, Paul Peter Piech (1920-1996) worked for most of his life as a printmaker in the UK, producing prints, posters and books from his home in the London commuter belt and, later, Wales. Piech’s works, sometimes joyful, sometimes angry, always inventive, tackle the political concerns of the late 20th century, combining the artist’s advertising expertise with his forthright personal beliefs. The Graphic World of Paul Peter Piech reproduces over 120 prints drawn from the collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum and the University of Reading.
